Members’ Open Forum is a chance to meet other members and discuss issues related to the store and our cooperative in general. This month's discussion topic is: The Decision-making Process for Expansion. General Manager Justin Pizzella and Board President Sarah Aerni will be present for the discussion. The brainstorm topic will be: Members' Role in the Process - how can members provide input? Forums will be repeated the second week of each month, alternating between Mondays and Thursdays. Members are invited to gather in the seating area at the front of the store at 7:00 p.m. Our Member Services Coordinator will be on hand to facilitate a loose agenda that includes standing items like a meet and greet, store news and updates, and a brainstorm, but the heart of each forum will be presentations and discussion on topics that identified as important to members. RSVPs are requested to ensure the comfort of all those who wish to attend, although walk-ins will be welcome as long as the space allows. If a larger group is expected, the Co-op will make every effort to arrange an alternate venue. RSVP by calling or stopping at the Customer Service desk.
